All five were taken to jail for what could have been a very close call, a potentially deadly one, police said.
Police say that the 16-year-old boy was drinking Fireball Whiskey inside Anderson Hall with his sister, Chandi Wilson, and four other Georgetown College students early Sunday.
All five are charged with second degree wanton endangerment and unlawful transaction with a minor third. Charges against one of the students were dismissed.
Officers say they were with the teen when he downed a fifth of whiskey and was so drunk his alcohol level was three times the legal limit. But somehow he managed to call 911. That's a good thing, police say, because if he didn't, he may have died. Officers say they got to him just in time.
"They found the juvenile there at the scene, highly intoxicated and he had vomited all over himself. And immediately, medical attention was given to him, said Lt. Jason Whitaker.
Police say all involved are underage and should not have been drinking.
